The work of Edinburgh plant experts in a South American rainforest is to go on display when a garden in Belize is opened to the public for the first time.

Scientists from Edinburgh's Botanic Gardens working in Las Cuevas in the Chiquibul Rainforest, a "biodiversity hotspot", hope the initiative will raise vital funds to help protect the plantlife there.

The pioneering initiative by Scottish-based scientists in Belize, Central America, has won the backing of TV survival expert Ray Mears.

The Capital's Royal Botanic Garden aims to promote the protection of one of the world's remaining unspoilt wildernesses by welcoming paying visitors to its field research station at Las Cuevas.

The Botanics Las Cuevas project manager, Chris Minty, explained the reasoning behind this week's public launch, and why the timing was crucial.

He said: "The form of scientific-eco-tourism we are offering enables our scientists to achieve the conservation and research objectives of Las Cuevas while, at the same time, providing a unique and amazing experience for visitors to the rainforest."
